Billie Eilish‘s hot streak is unlikely to cool down anytime soon. The 18-year-old music superstar is coming off her record-breaking win at the Grammy Awards by releasing the official title song for No Time to Die. You can listen to the track, also titled “No Time to Die” below.
The song was also accompanied with a new teaser for the film which you can find in the tweet below:

Here’s what those who worked on the film had to say about “No Time To Die”:
Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli:
“Billie and FINNEAS have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for No Time To Die, which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film.”
Director Cary Joji Fukunaga:
“There are a chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and FINNEAS. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I cannot wait for audiences to hear what they’ve brought – a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come.”
And Eilish herself:
“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”
Lastly, FINNEAS adds:
“Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live and Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.”
No Time to Die hits theaters April 10, 2020.
What did you think of “No Time To Die”? Personally, I found “Skyfall” to still reign supreme for recent Bond songs, but this one is definitely better than Sam Smith’s Spectre theme.
